Loving Every Minute is the fourth studio album by American country music artist Mark Wills. Released in 2001 on Mercury Nashville Records, the album produced two singles: the title track and "I'm Not Gonna Do Anything Without You" (a duet with Jamie O'Neal), which peaked at #18 and #31, respectively, on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. The album itself reached a peak of #10 on the Billboard Top Country Albums charts, and #93 on The Billboard 200.


The album's title track, written by Tom Shapiro, Michael White and Monty Criswell, was its first single as well. It peaked at #18 on the country charts in 2002. Following this song was the only other single, "I'm Not Gonna Do Anything Without You", which was co-written by Randy VanWarmer and Pirates of the Mississippi member Rich Alves. This song was also included on O'Neal's debut album Shiver.

"Somebody" can also be found on Reba McEntire's 2003 album Room to Breathe. McEntire's rendition of the latter song was a Number One hit for her in 2004. Also, John Berry recorded "The Balloon Song" and released it as a single in 2007 from his album Those Were the Days.
